  • Thinking in Public: Speaking Realities of Academic Labour
    • Abstract: Teaching is a public act. There we are, at the front of a room, facilitating learning. As teachers, we stand before a group of students and try to create the conditions for knowledge transfer, knowledge production, and (dare we say it') curiosity and inquiry. And we’re doing this, often, within a public institution. Those of us who teach—from graduate students, to contract academic faculty, to early career faculty, to full professors—are acting in public on a near-daily basis. We write, speak, publish, and present in public places from the classroom to the Internet. Yet, we do not tend to bring these personal and shared experiences into public conversations with one another. Unless you are a faculty member ... Read More

  • Specialization, Status, and Stigma: Teaching-Stream Roles in
           Research-Intensive Institutions
    • Abstract: University teaching-stream jobs that “unbundle” research from traditional faculty duties now make up a substantial minority of the academic positions at many institutions, including some of the largest (Bradshaw). While full-time teaching-intensive roles represent a significant improvement on casualized contract teaching, compared to research positions they are often marked by lower pay, a protracted path (if any) to tenure and promotion, and diminished status. By fostering more parallel professorial tracks, universities could address existing inequities, but the unequal status of research and teaching in research-intensive institutions means that faculty members who do not conduct research will not be ...

  • Redefining “Work”: English Studies, Teaching, and the Shifting
           Canadian Postsecondary Landscape
    • Abstract: What are you working on now'” That seemingly innocuous question is my departure point for exploring the challenges emanating from the changing nature of Canadian postsecondary education and the concomitant emergence of teaching-oriented positions in universities. When people ask what I’m “working on,” the question inadvertently underscores what commonly counts as academic labour. Said differently, the question “What are you working on'” highlights the privileged role universities have ascribed to themselves as the primary site of knowledge production, of research. This once unchallenged role has been eroded as teaching-focused colleges and vocationally-oriented institutes of technology, once barred or at ... Read More

  • Teach First, Research Questions Later: Understanding the Role of the
           College Teacher-Scholar
    • Abstract: We are at a crossroads in the profession wherein we can either find a way to support teaching-focused academics in remaining part of the scholarly conversation or risk losing recent doctoral graduates from our community. This short paper is a bit of a meditation on why that is and what comes next. I’m a community college instructor working at Douglas College in Metro Vancouver. We’re the largest public college in the province and the fourth-largest postsecondary institution, period. I don’t have an academic rank, much of a travel budget, graduate students, or access to sabbaticals, but I do have a stable income with benefits, a reliable (if reliably large) teaching load, and an institution that ...

  • The Gendered Labour of Loving What You Do
    • Abstract: Rather than beginning with what’s unspeakable, let’s start with what is spoken. In April of 2016, upei professor Ron Srigley published a short article in The Walrus magazine bemoaning the current state of the university classroom, a place, he claims, where “academic content” has given way to entertainment under the guise of “student-centred learning activities” (his scare quotes). On the rise of student experience offices he is quizzical, pondering to himself what kind of experience these offices are hoping to create before offering an answer: “Fundamentally, one in which students are made to feel happy, empowered, valued, and the centre of their own learning experience. The student services ... Read More

  • Challenging Creativity: A Critical Pedagogy of Narrative Interpretation
    • Abstract: The interdisciplinarity of creativity research in academia has lent itself to a proliferation of inchoate ideas, definitions, and arguments, and yet, curiously, within the public sphere “creativity” is often promoted as a socio-economic panacea, a word with power enough to heal us of the fractious vicissitudes of modern life. In the face of widespread precarious employment with which our graduating students must now contend—employment that is insecure, temporary, seasonal, contracted, lacking benefits—workers’ creativity is typically celebrated as a means of negotiating the new neoliberal norm.1 In Ontario, the recent mandate of the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities2 emphasizes its role in support ...

  • Recollection and Revision: Penelope Lively’s Moon Tiger
    • Abstract: despite being awarded the title Dame Penelope Lively in 2012 and having won prestigious literary awards during a long career, outside of Britain Lively’s fiction is less well known than her resumé would seem to warrant. Furthermore, her novels, despite being well reviewed, have received relatively little critical attention.1 A major exception is the Booker-Prizewinning Moon Tiger, which pursues many of Lively’s favourite themes but is more ambitious than her other novels, not only by being centred on a larger-than-life personality but by dramatically entangling her in world history, especially through her experience as a World War ii war correspondent. Evidencing Lively’s life-long fascination with history—her ... Read More

  • “I Hate You Everything”: Reading Adolescent Bad Feelings in Tamaki’s
           Skim
    • Abstract: At the end of part 2 in Mariko and Jillian Tamaki’s graphic coming-of-age narrative Skim, a full-page panel shows tenth grade Kim Cameron (generally referred to as Skim) alone in a very large, snowy area.1 At the top of the page, the narration, which is drawn onto the scene as it is throughout the text, reads “Dear Diary.” Much further down, the diary entry continues, “It’s snowing.” In the bottom corner, there’s an inset panel with a photograph of a boy taken from a newspaper. On his forehead, someone has written “fag” with a marker. Readers have seen this photo before. It is of John Reddear, a local boy who has recently committed suicide. Reddear haunts the text—his image resurfaces at several points, as ... Read More

  • The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy by
           Maggie Berg, Barbara K. Seeber (review)
    • Abstract: I’ve been too stressed and too frantic and too busy to submit this book review on time. Let me rephrase that. I’ve been too stressed and too frantic and too busy with professional commitments, whilst on sabbatical leave, to meet my esc book review deadline. I’ve been a slow professor. But not in the sense that Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber would want me to adopt this term. Influenced by the Slow movement, their book avowedly “extends Slow principles to academia” (vii), rightly claiming to be the first to do so. The main objective: to effectively adopt the Slow practices of simply slowing down and connecting to others, ourselves, and our environment into our academic lives and practices. The second and ...

  • Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial
           Capitalism by Iyko Day (review)
    • Abstract: Iyko Day’s Alien Capital offers a necessary and deeply welcome investigation into the intersections of race, indigeneity, and white settler colonialism. This book comes at a time when the problematics of settler colonialism have renewed urgency. From pipeline protests in Burnaby, British Columbia, and Standing Rock, North and South Dakota, and beyond, to reviews of the Hollywood blockbuster, Wonder Woman, settler colonialism’s currency resonates. Close observers of postcolonial criticism already know that the power of settler colonialism, as a theoretical problem and an analytic, has been longstanding. Almost three decades ago, Stephen Slemon noted in “Unsettling the Empire” that postcolonial criticism ... Read More

  • Early Modern Women in Conversation by Katherine R. Larson (review)
    • Abstract: Early Modern Women in Conversation by Katherine R. Larson is engaging. Its content adds to the academic discourse about early modern women and the rules of conduct, particularly conversation that governed the lives of women during the time period. Larson opens the book with “an anonymous poem that denounced Charles I’s letters at the Battle of Naesby in 1645 and their subsequent publication as the King’s Cabinet Opened as a conversation gone wrong” (1). This introduction, while very interesting, is a curious foreshadowing of the book’s content. It is curious because it sets the reader up for all that could go wrong with early modern women’s conversations. Larson adds that conversation during the early modern ... Read More

  • The Minor Intimacies of Race: Asian Publics in North America by Christine
           Kim (review)
    • Abstract: Christine Kim’s The Minor Intimacies of Race states that the public “is a crucial concept for this book because it provides a means of theorizing how collectives are defined, felt, and mobilized” and that “feeling is core to the construction of minor publics” (5). Explaining the stakes of considering “the feelings we have about multiculturalism as well as those about racialized conditions that are displaced by multiculturalism,” Kim writes that the public “can function as a critical tool capable of yielding sharp insights into how power, citizenship, and social dynamics operate” (5). Drawing on Michael Herzfeld’s concept of “cultural intimacy” in which “corporeal language promotes collective intimacy through ... Read More

  • Wallace Stevens Among Others: Diva-Dames, Deleuze, and American Culture by
           David R. Jarraway (review)
    • Abstract: David R. Jarraway’s Wallace Stevens among Others is an ambitious book. It places Stevens at the centre of an American canon that includes Cormac McCarthy and Barbara Guest, and Philip Roth and George Cukor. It promises to “document the precise extent to which Deleuze’s theorizing about identity and difference is so indebted to American as opposed to French literature” (4). Finally, it aims to illuminate the importance of “female subjectivity” in Deleuze and Stevens and to “refurbish” Jarraway’s earlier work on subjectivity as “a dissident process constantly engaging the world in a distanciated space of difference” (3). These are worthy goals. There is much work to be done on Stevens’s ... Read More

  • The Selected Essays of Sean O’Faolain by ed. Brad Kent (review)
    • Abstract: In his 1978 compilation The Best from The Bell, Sean MacMahon opined that “One excellent anthology would be the collected editorials” of the magazine (9). Many years later, this wish has been improved upon by Brad Kent, who has edited a selection of essays from the long and prolific career of Bell editor Sean O’Faolain, among Ireland’s leading public intellectuals of the twentieth century. In addition to his six-year stint at the helm of The Bell, O’Faolain was a novelist, biographer, and tireless advocate for liberalism and literary freedom. Above all, he was a writer. This collection gives us a welcome opportunity to appreciate O’Faolain’s voice, his lively, wide-ranging interests in the arts, public ... Read More

  • Unsustainable Oil: Facts, Counterfacts, and Fictions by Jon Gordon
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the introduction to Unsustainable Oil: Facts, Counterfacts, and Fictions, Jon Gordon offers a subheading that works as a fairly straightforward summation of the book’s concerns and its increasing relevance: “Literature’s Counterfactual Response to All the Factual Bullshit.” Gordon’s focus is the Canadian political and economic ideologies that reinforce Albertan bitumen extraction and refinement, and he handles the subject with depth and rigour to demonstrate the ways in which an overreliance on empirical rationality allows the Canadian state to justify the irrationality of tying a nation’s long-term economic wellbeing to a fuel source that will inevitably run out. Gordon’s analysis of the literary ... Read More

  • Magazines, Travel, and Middlebrow Culture: Canadian Periodicals in English
           and French, 1925–1960 by Fay Hammill, Michelle Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Faye Hammill and Michelle Smith’s Magazines, Travel, and Middlebrow Culture offers an important analysis of middlebrow aspirational culture as defined and projected by six Canadian magazines: Mayfair, Chatelaine, Maclean’s, La Revue Moderne, the Canadian Home Journal, and La Revue Populaire. As the titles of these most-read Canadian magazines in the period reveal, Hammill and Smith’s work eschews the traditional divide between French and English publications. The result is a nuanced analysis of the magazines’ diverse content as well as the place of the magazines themselves in Canadian culture. The book begins in 1925 with use of the term “middlebrow” and ends in 1960 when the magazines had either folded or ... Read More
